Subject: Tell me all that you know
I got hassled for vending but not busted.
This venue looked pretty historic to me.
It was a surprise to get the Dark Star
after LOOKS LIKE RAIN
and even more surprising
for them to steer back into it after Drums!!!
The Playing in the Band
had remained unfinished (no reprise) the night before.
I loved when they bridged P.I.T.B
Your Beautiful as you feel!
Subject: Nice Dark Star
And if you don't agree you are all gay and ignorant.

Subject: Only MY favorite years matter!
Subject: Great recording of a great show...
First of all the recording itself is terrific.
The first set starts off strong with a nice Jack Straw and a wonderful Peggy-O. Candyman and Bird Song are definitely highlights of a very solid first set.
But this show is all about the 2nd set. China Cat is a beast with some serious rhythm section which shows up beautifully on this recording. Very driving. Looks Like Rain is great, and I really can't say enough about the Dark Star. Funkiest version I've ever heard. The jam lost me for a bit, but brought me back soon enough.
Show ends with a Baby Blue that is a little too synth-y for my tastes, but is still kind of a nice bookend to an incredible show.

Subject: Well-played show with a nice 91 Star
Second set rocks pretty hard. Little too much of Bob's vocal delay at the end of LLR (cringe), but they more than make up for it with the Dark Star. One of the better Stars of '91. Spring 91 tour is a little underrated, and this pair of Greensboro shows is one reason why. Also see 3/17, 3/20, 3/21 and 3/25.
Contrary to previous review, this was not, in fact, Bruce's first tour with the band in 1991. He played at all four shows at the Cap Center March 17-21 to open the tour.
Subject: This is the one
Subject: Best of Spring '91 and possibly all of 1991
The sound on this is solid and the playing is simply great. This was the first set of shows Bruce sat in on in the Spring and it definitely sparked everyone in the band and in the audience. If you take out the Picasso Moon, it looks and feels like an early '70's show and set list.
First Set: Jack Straw is played alright, but it never hits the type of crescendo a great JS can hit. From here on out it is game on, w/ lovely versions of Peggy-O, a nice Phil offering w/ TT Blues, a sweet Candy and then Birdsong. This Birdsong is as good of a Birdsong as you will find. It weaves and bobs beautifully. Gives you the feel that something really special is coming in set II.
Second Set: China-Cat is unreal w/ an outstanding transition jam. Bruce, Phil and Jerry really playing hard off of each other. LLR is it's lovely self, very well played but not earth shattering.
The night before there was major teasing of Dark Star. You could feel Jerry really wanting to go there during PITB, but only Bruce seemed to want to follow his lead. This night, there was no doubt and the minute this first notes hit the air, WHAM, POW, KABOOM we are off. IMHO opinion this is the most in-depth DS in modern Dead history. Very psychedelic and reminiscent of a '73/'74 version. These is a living and breathing beast that will dance through you and lift you to that nether world that a great DS takes you to.
The remaining songs are sweet w/ the Black Peter being well above average verging on classic.
Listen for the Birdsong and the Dark Star, come back often for the beauty of this classic show. This is a top 5% show IMHO opinion, not the best ever but definitely a later day star and an all-time classic.
Thank you Mr. Miller for a real good time and a great upgrade. Now we just need a MOTB of this bad boy.
